An Introduction to Electrospinning and Nanofibers by et al Seeram Ramakrishna

By et al Seeram Ramakrishna

The learn and improvement of nanofibers has won a lot prominence in recent times a result of heightened expertise of its strength purposes within the clinical, engineering and safety fields. one of the such a lot profitable tools for generating nanofibers is the electrospinning procedure. during this well timed publication, the components of electrospinning and nanofibers are coated for the 1st time in one quantity. The booklet could be greatly divided into components: the 1st includes descriptions of the electrospinning procedure and modeling to acquire nanofibers whereas the second one describes the features and purposes of nanofibers. the fabric is aimed toward either newbies and skilled researchers within the region.

Dekker Encyclopedia of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (2nd Edition)

With its unique ebook, the Dekker Encyclopedia of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology instantly turned the reference opposed to which all different nano references are measured. Noting that the encyclopedia used to be being assembled through top specialists at an early level within the field’s improvement, Sir Harry Kroto, 1996 Nobel Prize winner in Chemistry, rightfully expected that the encyclopedia could compile key advances in a “coherently prepared framework.

Biopolymers/PVA Hydrogels/Anionic Polymerisation/ Nanocomposites (Advances in Polymer Science) (vol 153)

Offers current and destiny tendencies in polymer technological know-how, with a suite of papers contributed through researchers within the biopolymers, PVA hydrogels, anionic polymerisation, and nanocomposites.

Advances in Carbon Nanostructures

Carbon atoms have the superb skill to bond in impressive diversified manners which may suppose particular striking dimensional preparations from which completely varied and engaging nanostructured carbon fabrics are got. This publication goals to hide the newest advances in (i) Graphene and derivatives, together with graphene-based magnetic composites, membranes, wafer units, and nanofibers for numerous functions, in addition to a few specific homes, similar to gentle emission from graphene; (ii) Carbon nanotubes warmers and fibers for reinforcement of cement and diamond-based skinny movies; and (iii) Nanofluids such as either graphene and carbon nanotubes, except reporting a few vital case reviews facing carbon nanostructures and their use in sensors, coatings, or electromagnetic wave absorbers.

It is possible to electrospin silk to obtain fibers with average diameter less than 500nm [Ohgo et. al. (2003)]. Electrospun fibers from silk fibroin were found to promote cell adhesion and proliferation [Min et. al. (2004)]. Silk fibroin itself has several advantages biological properties such as good biocompatibility, good oxygen and water vapor permeability, biodegradability and minimal inflammatory reaction [Sakabe et. al. (1989)]. The high surface area to volume ratio of the electrospun fiber also encourages cell attachment, growth and proliferation.
